Producer

Local winemaker Sierra Reed, and when I say local, I mean winery out of the back of Bunnings in Torquay and vineyard in Jan Juc, that local, has been making wine under her label Reed for the last 10 years and has made a good name for herself despite not allowing her wines to be scored or judged by critics. Sierra hasn't gained formal training as a winemaker; she's done vintages around the globe, learning from the best in the business, completing stints at Chandon in the Yarra Valley, Head Wines in the Barossa, Rippon in Central Otago as well as European vintages in Rheingau, Pfalz and Barolo to name a few. She's inquisitive and thinks about things deeply but is also pragmatic. She backs herself and her wines and works passionately, dedicated to her craft. Her wines are aromatic, ethereal and balanced expressions of their grapes and soil. 

Tasting Note

No longer able to source suitable Riesling in her home GI of Geelong Sierra has decided to purchase her White Heart Riesling fruit from Mount Alexander in Central Victoria. An off-dry style, meaning expect some sugar with balancing bright acidity. Light and mineral, zesty lemon and lime, wet stone and a lick of smoke.
